Our clinic was among the first in Eastern Iowa to offer K-Laser® Therapy, an advanced form of laser therapy for tissue repair and growth. The therapy uses wavelengths of light that penetrate deeply into the body to promote pain control and healing.
Laser therapy has been shown to help with ligament sprains, muscle strains, and shoulder, back and knee pain. It’s been successfully used to treat a wide range of conditions, including:
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Tennis Elbow
- Rheumatoid Arthritis and Osteoarthritis
- Diabetic Neuropathy and Foot Ulcers
- Plantar Fasciitis
- Trigeminal Neuralgia
Dr. Kennedy notes “the treatment is painless and can be used to increase circulation and decrease pain, inflammation and swelling. It also improves healing time. It creates an optimal environment because as cells absorb the laser light, circulation improves, which in turn brings oxygen, water and nutrients to the cells that were damaged. In a sense, it enhances the normal process in your body trying to heal itself.”
The benefits of K-Laser include:
- Improved healing time
- Pain reduction
- Increased circulation
- Decreased swelling
K-Laser therapy is often used in conjunction with other forms of treatment for maximum effectiveness.
